Fly Like An Eagle

God’s “will,” sounds so much more graceful, when it looks and feels like success and rest. In my own life, I find it often looks drastically different. So many times my heart dreams of big things and great triumph, but the reality is that we have to fight to grow. We have to face hardship … More Fly Like An Eagle

Talent Scouts

When I was in 2nd grade, I had a crazy teacher. I mean really crazy. She had a hot temper and no skill with kids. I still remember her unhinged screaming while her eyes were huge and her finger was waving in a kid’s face. She would tell our class we weren’t gonna pass 2nd … More Talent Scouts

Blessed by The Best

I was listening to a friend of mine talk yesterday. She was talking about a great burden she carries in her life. It had brought her down and through some very dark times. This burden couldn’t be remedied by any power within her. She had talked to a counselor about the difficulty and he asked … More Blessed by The Best

Trust Fall

This is my scripture. It’s the one that resurfaces infinite amounts of times in my life for me. I know God is constantly reminding me where I need work. What spots need to be polished. Have you ever tried to pry something out of a toddler’s white knuckled death grip? You chase them all over … More Trust Fall

Even if He won’t.

2nd Corinthians 4: 8 &9 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 1st John 5:14 and 15 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he … More Even if He won’t.

I’m a book worm.

I’m having a hard time even digesting the fact that my name is in an author spot on a book…that I wrote. I never ever wanted to write a book. If someone had told me I would do this even 10 years ago, I would have raised an eyebrow and laughed in disbelief. Actually, I … More I’m a book worm.
